Zoom’s annual user conference came to a triumphant close last Wednesday, and we cannot express enough thanks to everyone who attended, participated, presented, volunteered, and staffed Zoomtopia 2019 and made it such a smashing success. This year’s event invoked a space theme, but at the heart of it all was gratitude. And we hardly know […]

To Our Valued Customers: Earlier this week, a security researcher published a blog highlighting concerns with aspects of the Zoom platform.

Let me be clear, I (and Zoom) absolutely LOVE Uber! And really, what’s not to love? Besides reinventing transportation on a global scale and evolving the sharing economy to make available otherwise non-utilized transportation capacity, and their unicorn status business performance — they are also a Zoom customer!
